- Sep 6, 2000For your voice comms in-and-around your APRS event, I just noticed that
R.S has their #21-1810 FRS radios on clearance sale for $20 each:
Full .5W HT's
38 CTCSS Tones
10 CALL Tones
And run on 3 AA batteries for 25 Hours.
Being replaced by #21-1813 for $80 which LOOKS IDENTICAL and have all
IDENTICAL SPECS. Only problem I can find with the $20 one is that the
screw on battery cover takes a LOT of fiddling to get off. Of the 22 FRS
I have bought so far for scouts and family, this is the best deal to date.
I prefer the AA batteries too for the higher life/$$$ ratio.
